In 2010, Arizona enacted SB 1070, the most extreme of a national series of misguided laws targeting Latinos and criminalizing immigration offenses.
In 2011, Arizona’s immigrants, children and grandchildren of immigrants, working people, and young people proved that commitment and volunteerism can step up to take on monumental responsibilities. Thousands of us chose to face the challenges of our community and use our power to recall a sitting Senate President and elect the first majority-progressive Phoenix City Council.
This year, the power of immigrants and working people are coming together again to repeat those victories and build the power to create change in Maricopa County.
